Samsung Expands Zero Client Lineup with New Desktop Endpoint

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced availability of its first standalone zero client desktop, the NX-N2-T, a compact and highly versatile VDI device that enables businesses to simplify and secure their desktop endpoints with built-in PCoIP® technology. Rounding out Samsung’s zero client lineup, the Samsung NX-N2-T is a VESA mountable endpoint that has the ability to support the I/O connectivity that today’s business users need, including use cases requiring up to six different USB devices.

“Our zero client product portfolio offers customers the broadest spectrum of endpoints to securely access the cloud and critical industry-specific applications, whether for large enterprises, healthcare providers, government agencies or higher education institutions,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “We’re committed to meeting the needs of these user environments, regardless of existing infrastructure and budget. Zero client solutions like the NX-N2-T Desktop are flexible and easy for businesses to deploy, maintain and manage, and are less vulnerable to security risks.”

Seamless, Secure Migration and Management

The Samsung NX-N2-T Zero Client Desktop features built-in PCoIP technology from Teradici that enables users to seamlessly connect to their organization’s VMware business cloud. This technology supports the need for businesses to simplify and secure their network endpoints with desktop intelligence baked-in to the design. The PCoIP zero client processor is used to reduce the desktop attack surface while almost eliminating the need for client-side administration. Since most software is remote and critical data is centralized, businesses are able to reduce the time and money invested in client-side administration.

Built for Adaptability, Affordability and Efficiency

Equipped with the latest Teradici chipset (Tera2), the NX-N2-T Desktop delivers up to five times the VDI pixel performance over the previous generation processor. It provides stronger security with AES 256-bit encryption and requires less power consumption, increasing efficiency and reducing energy costs. Using the included lightweight detachable stand, the NX-N2-T can be VESA mounted to a wall, the back of a monitor or hidden under a desk. This eliminates unplanned costs for mounting kits, while providing more out-of-the-box installation choices.

“The markets for VDI and emerging Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) are accelerating rapidly as today’s enterprises look to simplify desktop management, increase security and deliver a rich user experience,” said Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici. “Building on a track record of success with PCoIP zero clients, Samsung is extending its line-up of flexible, affordable zero client devices with the addition of the NX-N2-T desktop to its portfolio of popular zero-client display and zero-client stand endpoints.”

In addition to the NX-N2-T Desktop, Samsung’s Zero Client lineup features the NB-NH stand and NC Series displays. The NB-NH transforms business monitors into VDI access devices by integrating the latest VDI endpoint technology into the base of the monitor stand. Samsung’s NC Series zero client lineup is a class of professional-grade monitors specially designed to provide an all-in-one solution for desktop virtualization and cloud computing.

Price and Availability

The new NX-N2-T Zero-Client Desktop is now available with MAP price of $298. All Samsung Zero Client devices can be found at select Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined by calling 1-866-SAM-4BIZ or by visiting samsung.com/virtualdesktop.
